When will year-end tax information be available?

Question

When will year-end tax information be available? I’d love to get a head start on my taxes. Is there any indication of when the forms will be available through UA Online?

Response

The IRS issued an extension for employers to get the Affordable Care Act reporting forms out, so those are now due March 31. Employees don’t need those for their tax returns, but some preparers will undoubtedly ask for them. The 1095-C will be sent to employees by the new deadline of March 31. We’re working on a communication for that to go out in the next Statewide Voice newsletter as well as in an email to all benefit-eligible employees.  More information on filing your 2015 Federal Income Taxe can be found here.
